I am the user JimRockford. All my posts are gone. And now my account is locked too? Anyone here know how this can happen? It happened a little while earlier, while I was writing a post. Can anyone help?

Hey Grog - I knew a guy named Grog who lived in Hayward, CA. Are you him? Just curious. We used to play basketball at a park very near Grog's house....

Hey now HF,
Nope, I live in SoCal, so I'm not the Grog you used to play BBall with. Sorry! At 46, I don't play that much ball anymore. I do a lot of walking and hiking but the old knees can't take all the shock of BBall anymore.

Hey HF--I know that you and Dire have exchanged posts about this very subject, but just thought I would let you know that in his day, W Tell was quite the baller...

Old and crippled now, in part due to the interest in bball, but thought I would let you know...

Ah, Mr. T--got ya beat. I have been reduced to a brain floating in a pickle jar who must communicate via electric tubes that are linked from my cerebral cortex to this computer. My body is long gone.

Hello Mr Tell - Thanks for that. I believe it! I'm 36 and going pretty strong, but age is creeping up. Still hoping to play forever!:)

Once your show was canceled the Networks decided that you should be prevented from capitalizing on your good name even in an obscure etherland populated by self proclaimed Nerds. Thus, THEY have taken back all that you have done in the name of ROCKFORD. Big Brother WAS watching.

Sorry, shouldn't joke about this as I know it is a source of great frustration and anger for you...since I assume the post above is from an LMA person, perhaps this means that someone else used the "method" that created some serious problems for folks a few months ago...? Dire and others know more about how this happened, but perhaps someone is doing the same with your good name?

Wish I could be more helpful. You can send an email to the mods of the site (email is somewhere on site here) asking more specifically if something like this is occurring with your name...

Hey! Thank your for an answer. I had to make a new name to even log in to ask these questions. What happened here a few months ago? I don`t know. `
You`re right, I am a bit frustrated and sad, because I just started posting here and it was great to interact with other GD-fans, espcially as I live quite far away from other people. I just dont understand how this can happen? I could have understood it if I wrote something bad or hateful, but I absolutely did not. So yeah, quite sad as this was a great way to make some contact with other heads.
I wrote a mail to Archive, but no answer. My account is locked, and all my previous posts are gone, except for a the few last ones.
What happened here before? Can anyone tell me how to unlock my account?

Kind regards, Jim

Thank you : ) It is so good to hear that. I had to make two new identities (my original id and post vanished a few hour ago, and my second i cant log into, waiting for a answer from archive...) But thank you for your kind words. I will try to stick around as people around have been very nice.

Love to you all

There was someone posting under several-many different user names, answering themselves, calling out people, using "bad words"---just bad vibes all around. Ironically, your use of the numeral "2" was part of his schtick. It took some figuring out, but somehow someone managed to "fix" the problem with this person. My personal take on this person was that they were schizophrenic, rather than just malicious, so who really knows but him.

Maybe you're the original "2"? I, and many others, sincerely hope not. If you're not, then "welcome home" as they say. And if you are, then man, you know you'll be found out & the vilification will continue against you. Also, if you are "2", you know the deal man, just play nice. I for one am willing to converse with ANYONE here, but as in most societies, rudeness won't be tolerated for long.

Assuming you really are new to this forum, we need new blood. And like it's said @ Rainbow Gatherings, if you've got a belly-button, you're a Rainbow, and as far as I'm concerned the same goes here---all are welcome. Do you go/have you been to Gatherings? I've only ever seen one person mention anything about them here, which seems a little odd since so many touring heads from the 80's & 90's were regulars @ both national's & regional's.

May take the mods a while to respond, but I find they always do eventually...

Dire and others know better than me, BUT a while back someone figured out how to log on as someone else (eg, someone was coming on as "CLIFF" and for all intents and pursposes, WAS CLIFF...mods were contacted, they stopped the deceit, and all was restored. I think that when that happened, prior posts were lost in some instances...?

Not sure. Ask Dire.
